‘The ‘Classification of Substances and Mixtures for Environmental Hazards in accordance with GHS/CLP‘ is one of my favourite webinars, and is really popular with attendees’ – Laura
This webinar is perfect for anyone who is either new to classification and labelling or is already familiar with the process but would like to attend a short course to help reinforce/build on your existing knowledge (but does not have the time to attend a lengthy training course/elearning course).
Furthermore, this webinar covers both substances and mixtures classification, so you get a complete overview of the classification process for environmental hazards!
Although the focus of this webinar will be on the EU CLP, the underlying principles of classifying and labelling are also applicable for GHS. Any differences between the EU CLP and GHS will be highlighted during the session.
- What meant by classification and why it is important to do
- The main difference between CLP and GHS (including the GHS hazard categories which have not currently been included in CLP)
- The differences between harmonised classification and self-classification
- Bridging principles and how these are used
- Explain when existing mixture test data can be used and the scenario where it should not be used, and the reason for this
- The differences between aquatic acute toxicity and chronic acute toxicity hazard class and what is meant by ‘category’
- How multiplication factors (M-factors) are derived and when they should be used
- The differences between generic cut off limits, specific concentration limits and generic concentration limits and how these are used
- Important considerations when choosing data for classification purposes (including the types of data which could be used)
- How to classify a substance and mixture for each of the environmental hazard classes
